Penthouse Suite by Chantelle Llyod

“Caleb you don’t have to do that, I’m fine now. I am literally five minutes away, no need to str-” I never got to finish my sentence because I suddenly felt my body being forcefully pushed to the right hand side of my car and into the glass, but my body didn’t stop there. It was launched out of the window, hard. I didn’t even have time to scream before my body hurtled out and hit the pavement brutally. I felt a warm and sticky liquid on my face and I heard a voice bellowing for someone to call an ambulance, which was only followed by the sound of people’s panicked voices.

Sophie thought that she had everything she ever wanted, a job she loved, and a best friend who understood everything about her

Until Xavier crashed into life… literally

In walked a tall man in a 3 piece black suit that fit him perfectly and definitely screamed RICH. Although his head was down he had a mop of brown hair that was styled in the sexy bed hair way. He looked muscular even with the suit and I wondered why I was checking him out. When he lifted his face, I saw his jaw chiseled and his cheekbones were high. My eyes made contact with his and I audibly gasped. I would remember those eyes from anywhere, even if I had been thrown from a car and I was nearly unconscious when I saw them.

But while Xavier is the charismatic billionaire

Sophie isn’t sure she can give him all her secrets…

I gave this book 3.5 out of 5 stars. Sophie was my favorite character in that she was strong and she never let the fact that Xavier was a billionaire cloud her thoughts. She was always herself and she was determined to maintain her financial freedoms even though he could have taken care of her easily. She did have her short comings and insecurities but they were actually backed up in her crazy past. Some of the things that happened in her past could mess a person up, but with the help of her best friend Caleb she was able to move on and do what she wanted. I liked that Xavier was able to respect her opinions and decisions (for the most part) despite his controlling nature. Though he still did annoying things or they had their misunderstandings I liked that eventually one of them would initiate a conversation and they would hash things out.  I actually really enjoyed this book even though the ending was pretty much a Harlequin ending (if you’ve ever read a Harlequin novel you know what I’m talking about). I didn’t like that the ending was like that, it was cute but I felt that the author was rushed in the end and that it was a bit disappointing. Anyway this was a standalone and i read it on the Wattpad After Dark app (it’s a bunch of free books written by different people, you should definitely check it out)
